A VOICE FROM THE FOE Troubles, . mistakes, delays, are not all ion one side. The fact is, that civilians, far off from the > field of danger,'do not «ee the impracticabilities of an advance, where an enemy is to be met. It ' is also manifest that delay will exhaust the enemy, •while we . shall be, yet in our vigor. In addition ,to our quotations in another, artioley we give the following from" the .Memphis Appeal: " Price is in full retreat Southward. Price will probably continue in full retreat, for there are several—indeed, no less than three—Federal armies, each as large, better armed, and better equipped, converging upon him. His past victories have been rendered valueless. Federal forces have been _massed in .Kentucky too great for a man of Sidney Johnston's calibre to venture to'a ttachand the paralyzing of Price through the withdrawal of _McCuLiOCH has rendered the overrunning of Missouri to the Arkansas frontier an easy task to the Federals.

ARE THERE TOO MANY MINISTERS ? This "question, which has been slightly agitating the Church for some months, is discussed by Dr. Hodge, very ably, in the January number of the Biblical Repertory. So acceptable is this article that our Board of Education have " had copies of it multiplied and senfr'a'rourfd as aGircular. We suppose every minister in' our Church has a copy. We are glad of it. The paper is both suggestive and instructive. It in cites _J hought, and gives food to thought. It discusses ', with-Tmuch lucidness, a question of 'vital importance. * _, _, With some few of the author's remarks, a portion of. our minister_^ and people will not-" agree. - 'For instance: -Dr. Hod&e _, affirms and endeavors to sustain "the proposition to provide ' an adequate support for, " the clergy, . independent ofthejx congrega-j tions,"r as " righteous and Scriptural." Good and-able men have advocated this doctrine.;' It prevails in the' Free Church of Scotland. But in our Chur...

, ELDERS AS MODERATORS. It is-not often that our brethren, the Ruling Elders, are ambitious for the attain-1 ment of office in bur ecclesiastical courts. They sit as the equals__of ministers in the conducting and determining of all, business; ,andj there is but two parts of the presiding officer's duty which they might not perform. These are th! e preaching of the'sermon,,and the blessing of the, people in the flame, of the Lord.

_^ Ei-Protestantismo." —Such is the title of a pamphlet of twenty-four pages, neatly printed in Spanish.,-and bearing date, Bogota,' 1862, by the Rev. Wm. E. McLaren, -one of our beloved missionaries in New Grenada. In this tractate Mr. McLaren gives a succinct statement of the distinctive features of Protestantism with respect ts the Church,, the Word of God, the Sacraments, the _^power of the clergy, justification, a future life, etc. Last October Mr. McLaren administered the Lord's Supper after the Protestant form. This is probably the first time this ordinance was ever dispensed in South America, by a Protestant. He is now able to preach with a good degree of ease in Spanish, and his Sabbath Sehool and Bible Class are in a flourishing state. Altogether he'is quite e/ncouraged in his work.
